EC to allow manual voter verification in 2016 election

The Electoral Commission has agreed to allow manual voter verification during the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections.

This will be done for voters whose particulars appear in the voters register but may be rejected by the biometric verification machines.

The biometric voter verification will still be used during the polls.

This decision was taken at the just ended Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) on Tuesday.

It was also agreed at the meeting that 29,000 instead of 30,000 polling stations will be used during the elections due to budget constraints.

Below is a copy of a statement released after the meeting:
